Beautifully Body Positive: Interview with Tattoo Artist Meg Tuey

Tattoo Artists5 min Read

In this interview with tattoo artist Meg Tuey she talks about books, art, and and the importance of femininity in a masculine world.

What is the responsibility of the artist? Is it to make a statement on the current social standing of things, or to show how the world should and could be? Or maybe both? Wherever your stance may stand, it's clear when looking at Meg Tuey's work that art is powerful. Her portfolio immediately emits a sense of positivity about life, the body, and the world in general. Her artwork, both tattoos and paintings, exist in a world where beauty is not skin deep, it's an intrinsic part of emotional well being. 

How did you get into tattooing and was it always the job you had in mind? 

How would you describe your style? What are your favorite pieces to tattoo? 

A lot of your work is surreal, humorous, and beautifully human. What does the world look like to you, and how does your worldview affect your artwork? 

Your work shows women and female sexuality in a really gorgeous, empowering way. What would you say is your philosophy behind illustrating the female form? What do you hope your viewers will think or feel after viewing your paintings or illustrations or getting your tattoos? 

You're an avid Tom Robbins reader! (I put him on my reading list, thank you!) What other authors, artists, or filmmakers inspire you? 

What do you do when you're not tattooing? Where is your favorite place on the planet? 

Any plans, guest spots, collabs, projects, etc. that you want to share?
